9 Ways Employers Can Enhance Retention

The cost of turnover in the United States is $1 trillion each year. Yes, you read that correctly. A trillion dollars—which means a trillion reasons for businesses to put staff retention first.

You might be wondering why the cost of turnover is so high. Well, there are a variety of expenses to account for when workers leave a firm, including:

The cost of replacing the employee in terms of both time and money (including onboarding and recruitment of new talent).
Low morale of employees who are left behind.
Productivity loss throughout the recruiting and onboarding process
Loss of expertise and corporate knowledge for your firm.

According to Gallup, replacing an employee might cost anywhere from one-half to two times the person's yearly compensation. On the other hand, companies that retain their staff for extended periods of time can easily benefit from rewards that go beyond the expenses of recruiting and training.

Retention of employees leads to:

Improved client service.
Continuity and momentum within teams and throughout the organization.
A more positive corporate culture that supports employee engagement.

Companies can also improve their recruitment process to grow their teams when engagement is high, and turnover is low. In other words, it's to your company's best advantage to look after your current workforce and employ strategies that increase retention and engagement wherever possible.

If you are looking for ways employers can enhance retention rates, read on!
